I had such a great time photographing Ashley and Carl with their daughter Lily at Eleanor Tinsley Park ealier this month. My newest mentee, and aspiring photographer Jacquelyne, tagged along to learn. So we had an entourage.
As you probably know, not ALL kids arrive to a photo shoot with their happy hats on. Lily just needed a little coaxing to get into a better mood for our session. But all it took was loaning her my pair of sandals and a little distraction from Jacquelyne for us to turn a bad mood into a fun engagement and family shoot. Sometimes all it takes it the right accessory, amirite? When I arrived at their wedding just 3 days later, Lily came and gave me the biggest hug. I felt like I passed the Kid Test.
